It's the week of the show!!!
I am a wreck! A good kind of wreck. Running around, getting last-minute better ideas together, costume bits, the right type of paint, the canvas for a better price... and lots of apple pies! 


The process has had it's major ups and downs, like any process, but I'm getting very excited to share it with a larger audience. It's terrifying to put a big idea like this one out into the universe. I hope the audience thinks it's worth it! If we create a lively, real, relevant discussion that empowers people to behave better and build more fulfilling relationships with others; I've done my job. A tall order. Or, is it? 

I believe we all bend toward the light. Sometimes it's hard to see.

Here's the scoop:

Entering their 10th performance season, Contradiction Dance revisits an interactive performance piece that asks us all to consider how we treat the “other” in our midst.

Provocative and poignant, "Objects of Hope: The America Project" deconstructs symbols of our society and reconstructs our humanity and makes global issues personal. The show will address homelessness, immigration, and gun violence through the company’s unique blend of movement, theater, and music. The audience is part of the artistic expression and will have the opportunity to process and take action on their individual discoveries around this issue.

Created and choreographed by Kelly King, Artistic Director of Contradiction Dance. Featuring Alison Waldman, Jessica Denson, Sadie Leigh, Erin White, Neil Negri, and Samir Bitar.
